Commercial & Institutional Pickups
The worker-owners of The Compost Co-operative turn waste into living-wage jobs, healthier soil, and renewable energy!
Restaurants, food processors, apartment complexes, towns, schools and other institutions: you can reduce your waste headed to the landfill/incinerator AND contribute to positive social and environmental change by contracting with us to divert your compostables.
We haul your scraps to local farms that make compost and anaerobic digesters that produce energy. In the face of drought, extreme heat, flooding, and erosion, compost makes soil more resilient and can eliminate the need for fertilizers and pesticides. By working with us you become an active participant in protecting the soil and building living-wage employment for people impacted by incarceration.
Even small businesses can divert food scraps with our service:
- 32-gallon container + compostable bag + rinsing = $15 per weekly pickup/$65 per calendar month
- 64-gallon container + compostable bag + rinsing = $20 per weekly pickup/$85 per calendar month
Does your business or institution produce a ton or more of food waste per week?
The Compost Cooperative can help you comply with Massachusetts’ Commercial Food Material Disposal Ban.
We offer a one-week audit for large businesses and institutions: we’ll pick up, weigh, and analyze your food scraps to develop an individualized quote--free of charge!
Contact us below to begin the free trial and estimate process, or to start with just one container. The unit price goes down as you divert more scraps!
